ZGEMMA H9S SE

GOOD POINTS
1) Small compact and neatly sized for modern day device.
2) The multiboot allows up to 4 different images to be installed. I have willobuild-grogbuild and open Pli and it can be swapped between all 3 images in no time.
3) Picture quality is excellent on iptv and the zap time changing channels is very quick
4) I do advise anyone to keep a usb in for extra storage
5) Flashing process is pretty simple and best via a usb if not familiar with ftp clients like putty or openwebif
6) I have used and setup a few zgamma h9s 2s models but the se model seems to pack a big punch over its sister box

BAD POINTS
1) The android side seems to let it down at the moment. Its a simple process setting up the E2 side but flashing the android is a different story.
2) Took 4 attempts to flash an android image using the same usb and file. Changed nothing but finally she flashed on the 4th go.
3) Once the android image boots up i find the google app store will not allow any apps to be downloaded.
4) Side loaded apps via a usb and installs no problem
5) Once 3rd party apps are installed you get problem with the remote and online keyboard connecting
6) Once you get the android side playing a few apps it its pretty decent but this is new to me so a few pointers to help others.

Please feel free to post and ask questions

S Glad your pleased with yours fella on paper a very cheap all in one solution.

I sent mine back erratic movement of both my dishes. Its not my first rodeo with Zgemma's dish moving abilities my H9 was the same. My H7 no problems. The SE i sent back had a mere 215ma available at the motor. To put that into context my Vu Duo2 has 405ma.

Zgemma have a bit of a reputation for this issue some have no issue so i reckon the QC department of Zgemma is shite.

Snap, no more ZGs for me or recommedations to mates. so much frustration over the box and the motor. Something drastically wrong when a lowly amiko mini drives my dish like an F1 car while the H9s zg is like watching a dead man walking. Choice of either new boxes or motors is not great
